Mr. Moffat has worked at LMAX Exchange since 2008 with his most recent role being COO since the middle of 2003. Prior to this, he also worked at LMAX in the role of money laundering reporting officer and the head of operations.
According to Mr. Moffat in a statement on the new office, “The establishment of LMAX Hong Kong as an SFC licensed broker significantly contributes to the firm’s growing presence in Asia Pacific; the recent addition of a new matching engine in Tokyo (TY3) means we can offer the same low latency execution of under 4ms to our clients in Asia Pacific, that our clients currently enjoy in LD4.”
“LMAX Exchange is leading the industry towards transparency through its unique exchange trading business model, and we’ve witnessed a real shift in FX trading towards transparent price discovery and fair execution over the past few years. In 2015 our goal is to become a leading player in FX trading in Asia Pacific by offering that same transparent, neutral, level playing field for all market participants in the region,” added David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange in an accompanying statement.
